U.S. Sen. Bob Casey (D., Pa.) introduced legislation Thursday designed to reduce sexual violence on college campuses.
The Campus Sexual Violence Elimination Act would require colleges and universities to spell out their policies regarding sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking. Casey said the bill would close a gap in federal law under which those policies need not be disclosed.
"Sexual violence is a tragic and harsh reality on college campuses throughout the country," Casey said in a news release. "We must ensure that when we send our sons and daughters off to colleges and universities, we are providing every means necessary for them to learn in a safe environment." - Inquirer staff
